Callia Alta Shiraz Bonarda 2006
Valle de Tulum, San Juan
Bright, clear, light scarlet with purple hints.
Dense stewed black plums, with cinnamon and clove spices. Some cedar and chocolate hints.
Medium bodied, soft, warm and round. Sweet, spicy, concentrated dark fruit - stewed plums - with faint hints of liquorice and powdery cedar. Mild acidity, soft tannins.
Pleasant, packed with fruit and easy to drink. Arguably lacking in structure but at this price, that would hardly be a fair criticism.
